NEW BEDFORD WHALEBOAT - 1860

The New Bedford whaleboat was a light swift craft. It was planked with rot-resistant cedar only half an inch thick with lapstrake construction. It was double ended so that it could change direction quickly and easily. This type of vessel is very interesting as the method of construction was typical for whaling. Lightweight but sturdy, with fore and aft to sail in both directions, was able to carry six crew members. Since it was possible that a harpooned whale could drag a boat for days, crew on board stored all the supplies needed such as water, food, tobacco and a compass.
